Tailor CX reporting tools to specific roles for bigger impact
When it comes to the customer experience, there are no small roles within your organization—everyone makes an impact. By getting your entire team on board and in tune with your CX measurement strategy, you can expect more engaged, dedicated employees—and in turn, more satisfied, loyal customers.
The most important thing is to make sure your team members understand their role by providing a comprehensive suite of tools uniquely fit to each level. Communicate the overarching concept and goal of your programme so employees know where their focus should be.
Here are 2 things you can do immediately to drive CX programme engagement from each team member:
Customize reporting tools
Not every employee needs every piece of data. Too much information can lead to analysis paralysis—meaning less concentration on impactful change. Take the time to customize reporting tools to fit each role and level, such as:
Make sure your reporting system is user-friendly so employees with varying levels of technology comfort can navigate the dashboard with ease. Your CX reporting dashboard should provide actionable information with easy-to-understand features and tools, so your employees can have less screen time and more face time with customers.
Lay out action plans for various timeframes—daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly—for each role. For example, a location manager should check customer comments and share positive guest comments daily. A mid manager should review performance across locations and send out best practices on common themes on a monthly basis. Providing a clear, simple checklist will keep the team organized and on-target.
Paint the big picture
Explain how the CX programme fits into the organization’s overarching strategy. What is the main goal? How are you going to reach it? What can each member do to contribute? Incorporate the following into your communication plan to give a holistic picture of your CX programme:
